No woman should die giving birth.

Recently, I wrote about where we would like to be in the next 100 years. Most of us in the left-wing blogosphere want to see the end of world hunger, wars, and poverty, among other things. But there was one thing missing from that declaration — no woman should have to die giving birth to their child. This is a goal that the UN Population Fund has set (UNFPA).

I propose that, to #10, the eradication of disease:

All major diseases will be eliminated through massive new investment, research, and design in drugs and treatments. All people will have universal access to such treatments. Prevention will be the primary source of treatment for diseases.

That we add at the end, “No woman should die giving birth to their child or children.”
